four days before automatic budget cuts, the sequester, the new secretary of state tries to reassure u.s. embassy employees. >> i will do everything in my power to go to capitol hill and persuade my colleagues of the vitality, criticality of everything we're doing here. >> in washington president obama is increasing the pressure speaking just now to the nation's governors. >> here's the thing. these cuts do not have to happen. congress can turn them off any time with just a little bit of compromise. >> this weekend republican governors had their say. >> the uncertainty of sequestration is really harming our states and our national economy. >> the sequester was put in place to be a hammer, not a policy, and now here we are just a week away. find another way to do it, and get it done now. >> arizona. we have raphion there. it's going to cut a lot of jobs. >> vatican intrigue. new controversy surface as the pope permits an earlier start for the conclave to choose his successor. and the oscar goes to ben affleck. scoring gold with "argo" as first lady michelle obama stuns with a surprise spe
address january 24th of last year, just weeks after the last u.s. troops had left iraq for the last time. in the run-up to this year's state of the union address, just this weekend, the weekend before the first state of the union of president obama's second term, this is what happened in afghanistan. this is the change of command ceremony in afghanistan. general john allen handing over command of u.s. and international troops in afghanistan to a new commander, to general joseph dunford. this is the 14th time that command has transferred in the afghanistan war, because that war has been going on for that long. general john allen is out as commander. he is handing over the leadership. if all goes as planned, general dunford is going to be the last person to have this job. he will be the 15th of 15 u.s. commanding generals for this war in afghanistan. as such, a substantial portion of what he'll be responsible for as commander will be leaving, the huge logistical feat of getting us after fighting there for 12 years. is that going to be a focal point of tomorrow's state of the union address?
think that if you actually are going to be able to target eve an u.s. citizen that is meant to do us harm, which this administration has said i think rightly we have the right to do, then there should be in camera, right to congress, that has oversight for our military. they tear ones who declare war. they're the ones that raise moneys for our military and provide for rules and regulations of our millionth by the constitution, should be able to then see post facto and watch to make sure that we have not gone too far. that's happened before as you know. and so therefore that's when you can review the processes if it has to remain classified. >> representative davis, and not implying here this is a major scandal at all, but the saying does go that the cover-up is always worse than the crime. >> right. >> is there any sense that's what's going on here? >> well, i don't think anybody foresaw the wide application of drone usage that the administration's undertaken. and i think you're going to have to have some transparency in terms of when are they going to be used, what are the protocols

durbin, and others who are uneasy about it. when it comes to protecting the u.s., is president obama closer to george w. bush -- >> i don't think so. what you see is safeguards. former secretary robert gates saying we should have a core court going forward to make sure that we're -- that we're following procedure. you have brennan say in his hearing if we miss a target we should disclose it. that all represents a very different tone from what you saw under the bush administration, one of trying to have a procedure and openness and transparency and bringing everybody together to try to agree on how we balance security and privacy. >> the chairman of the intelligent committee says there's no need. let me play that. >> there is plenty of oversight here. there's not an american list somewhere overseas for targeting. that does not exist. i think there's sensationalism. this is a serious matter, but i think the rules have been consistent. >> chip, as you know, the act established 'federal court that oversees suspected foreign spies working in the u.s., so the question that's being debated
senator hagel said that the u.s. state department was an adjunct of the israeli foreign ministers office, which i think would be breathtaking if he said that to have such a view. i got a letter back from senator hagel in response to my question, did you say that and do you believe that, and the letter said he did not recall saying that, he disavows that statement. >> it's not enough for you? >> well, if, in fact, that's true, that would end that matter because he has previously inside a book that the jewish lobby influences the u.s. senate and makes us -- pushes us to make very bad decision. if the second statement were true, he said that the secretary of state's office is under the control of the israeli foreign ministers. those two together would show an edge and a view of the israeli u.s. relationship way out of the mainstream, so i'll just take him at his word medicals something new comes along. >> kristen welker, what does the white house have to say about this? they seem to be confident that he is going to get through next week. >> they continue to be confident, andrea. i can tell

fellow soldiers boarded a convoy to embark on the first ever u.s. army coast-to-coast motor transport train averaging a mere 5 miles per hour, it took the caravan two months to reach san francisco, driving along the local lanes and the state roads, but they were in such disrepair that the soldiers had to fix 88 bridges themselves just to complete the journey. years later, that same young soldier, dwight d. eisenhower, found himself again on the road, but this time as a general commanding the allied forces in world war ii. along the pristine freshly built roads of the german autobon. troops and eisenhower took full advantage of the roads built by nazi germany and using them to defeat the axis forces, and the super highway left a lasting impression on the general and one that would grow into the grand plan once he became president. even before the election, he envisioned a national highway system 40 miles long that would be quote as necessary to defense as it is to the national economy and the personal safety. as president, eisenhower set out to gather national support complete with a m
stability and threatens ultimately u.s. national security. the president said it demands swift and credible action by the international community. that's where everything comes to a screeching halt because north korea is pretty much sanctioned out at this point. unless china decides to cut off oil supplies and other goods to north korea, it appear there's no stopping the north korean regime at this point. >> what's china's response? immediate neighbors to the west. a blast -- if i were china, i'd be a hell of a lot more concerned about them setting off nuclear devices than in the united states. look at the map, they're literally in the shadow of china? any response from china or belief inside the pentagon or this administration china will eventually step up and start exerting more pressure on the north koreans to become a more responsible state? >> one of the biggest fears in that region is it will spark some kind of regional nuclear arms race. both south korea and japan in the past have threatened to start developing their own nuclear weapons. no signs they're doing that yet. we go back to

meeting privately with sex abuse victims during his 2008 trip to the u.s. but saved his biggest surprise for last says john thav s who covered the vatican for 30 years. >> he will be remembered as the pope who resigned without a doubt. i think it may be his finest legacy and greatest gift to the church because he has brought the papacy into the modern age. >> reporter: currently the con clave to elect the successor is scheduled for march 16-march 20 but there is talk of moving it up because all the cardinals who will vote on the new pope are schedulealed to be here february 28 to say good bye to pope benedict. >> thanks to you so much for that. we will have much more on the selection of the new pope including why some are saying a woman should be selected. we'll have that in our next hour. >>> congress considers new restrictions on firearms gun rights advocates say there is a hurdle gun control advocates may not be able to clear, the second amendment. just how high a hurdle is that? here is pete williams. >> the ancient map makers once labelled areas they didn't know about as -- it is ve

than human warfare is untrue. a recent report from the council on foreign relations called reforming u.s. drone strike policies finds, quote, far less collateral damage from drones than other weapons platforms. it quotes the bureau of investigative journalism, a british nonprofit, which found in the pakistan drone strikes, 23% of those killed were civilians and in yemen only 8%. approximately 800 civilians killed since 2004 are far too many, but the afghanistan war according to the u.n. left well over 13,000 civilians dead and the iraq war left more than 100,000 civilians dead. i understand the fears associated with robotic warfare, but it makes more sense to be anti-war than to be anti-drone. the drone program is a huge asset just as it has made huge mistakes. it has significantly degrade the capabilities of al qaeda but if we are intentionally killing people running to victims of strikes or attending their funerals, then those are war crimes. but i sense some in this nation are getting a little soft and forgetful when they defend the civil liberties of al qaeda members who are working

. we're not going to do that. the society will survive. the u.s. military will survive. and at the end of the day, we're no closer to anything serious on the budget. we're no closer to anything remotely serious on getting this economy growing again. this is such an enormous distraction from what really matters when facing the united states. that is what's truly depressing. >> i'll tell you, people always get tired of me telling stories about when i was congress. so i'll tell a story before i got in congress. the first thing i ever did politically was in 1993, lead a tax revolt, pensacola city hall tried to raise taxes by 65%. and they tried -- if we don't raise taxes 65%, this was right after the clinton tax increases and the state. and i was saying this is going to be devastating for our economic development. well, the city -- every city councilman got up there and councilwoman saying we don't get 65% tax increase, the firefighters aren't going to be able to come and rescue your little doggy from the tree. when your children are going to walk down streets that aren't going to be -- an
